Hi, I'm a new member :D I'm getting 2 rats (maybe more he he) soon and want to set up a beautiful home for them first. Money's not really an issue as I'm not paying for it lol (typical student) but was wondering if anybody had any advice on what type of cage to get. I have heard ferret cages are suitable as I have seen several of these that I like. I've also found a very large rat skyscraper that I like but am worried about their feet. Is it safe to put cardboard down on each level? Or is there anything else I can put down instead?

what size are they ?
if smaller i would suggest a smaller cage geared for hamsters with smaller spacing between the bars.
if bigger rats then a cage like the tom rat cage or the jenny rat cage are really nice

Ok thanks that's really helpful. I think they're gonna be bigger and I've actually been looking at the Jenny Rat cage so I might go for something like that.

First off, where are you located? If you're in the US or Canada I would highly recommend Martins Cages (www.martinscages.com). Up until last week I had my girls in the R-965.

The nice thing about Martins is that the rats cages bar spacing is 1/2in by 1in, small enough for the youngest rat. I've had a 3 week old girl in that cage with no problems.

Ooo, you're so lucky! I love the Jenny Rat cage! I have my two boys in a two-level Ferret cage (the one with the yelow bottom, if you've ever been to Pets at Home) but as soon as i have my own place and enough money, i'm definitley upgrading to the Jenny one.
